Setting ‘Reasonable’ Goals, Expectations and Routines for Remote Learning

edsurge | April 27, 2020

It has been over a month since most U.S. schools closed their doors. But what many hoped would be a temporary transition to remote learning has morphed into something more permanent, as many districts have announced they will not reopen for the rest of this academic year. The hasty rollout of new plans, and piecemeal changes to them, have flustered teachers and parents alike. “It’s really hard to have a routine with changing expectations week by week,” said Angela Estrella, an instructional coach at the Stanford University Graduate School of Education. “What seemed reasonable two weeks ago now does not seem so reasonable today.”

Macmillan Learning Launches Virtual Professional Development Series on Improving Student Engagement for Better Outcomes

Macmillan Learning | August 23, 2021

Macmillan Learning, a privately-held, family-owned education publishing and services company announced a new professional development series for educators to help support student engagement and success in college. The virtual “Engage Students to Achieve More” series is free for college faculty and administrators and will explore the techniques and technologies used to support active learning and student engagement in and outside the classroom, as well as timely lessons about effective teaching pedagogies gleaned during the pandemic. Student engagement continues to be an area of concern due to educators’ diminished ability to work one-on-one with students and the decreasing levels of student motivation and morale versus pre-pandemic. It ranked as instructors greatest challenge in 2020, up from their third greatest challenge just two years ago, according to Digital Promise. “While student engagement plays an important role in helping students in their coursework, its impact reaches far beyond the classroom,” said Charles Linsmeier, General Manager of Macmillan Learning. “In order to close COVID-19-related learning gaps, educators and student advocates are seeking new ways to best reestablish meaningful connections and timely interventions for deeper learning and engagement with their students. This is even more important with the variability and blending of synchronous and asynchronous teaching and learning environments, which is the norm for many institutions for the foreseeable future.” Throughout the complimentary virtual professional development series, which begins in August and continues throughout the fall, participants will hear about student engagement practices and solutions informed by the experiences of instructors, students, and administrators during the pandemic. The series explores various strategies, methods, and techniques that help increase students’ attention, interest, curiosity, and positive emotional connections to their learning and college communities. About Macmillan Learning Macmillan Learning is a privately-held, family-owned company that improves lives through learning. By linking research to learning practice, we develop pioneering products and learning materials for students that are highly effective and drive improved outcomes.
